5 Round Mock Draft PPR: Round 1












(1.01) Antonio Brown- This pick is certainly not an outlandish one. While most will choose one of the elite RB's here, Brown is arguably the safest fantasy player you can draft. Crazy high floor and an even crazier ceiling if Ben Roethlisberger plays all 16 games.






(1.02) LeVeon Bell- LeVeon Bell is the best RB in fantasy football. He'll be a top 3 pick in 95% of all fantasy drafts this season. Dude is a stud. Period.









(1.03) Todd Gurley- It's tough having to choose between Gurley and the following two selections. Either way, you can't go wrong with any of them. While some regression is expected, Gurley should still have another tremendous season.







(1.04) Odell Beckham Jr.- If I had to choose between Odell Beckham Jr. and David Johnson, I'd pick Johnson. However, I think most will go the other way. Beckham is another player with a high floor and even higher ceiling.







(1.05) David Johnson- I feel picks 1 through 7 could go any number of ways. It truly is a toss-up based on personal preferences, scoring system, lineup requirements, etc. I have Johnson as my RB3 going into 2018. This man was an absolute force in 2016 and I expect him to pick up right where he left off two seasons ago.





(1.06) Ezekiel Elliott- The more I think about it, the more I may start to move Elliott further down in my personal rankings. Dallas could struggle to pass the ball in 2018, thus creating stacked boxes in front of Elliott, but we all know how elite of an RB he is and because of that I don't see him lasting beyond pick 6 or 7 in drafts this summer.







(1.07) Deandre Hopkins- I'll say again, these top 7 players are all so talented. Some would rather have Hopkins over Beckham. Frankly, I know some people that have Hopkins as their WR1 heading into 2018. With Deshaun Watson at the helm, the sky is the limit for Hopkins.






(1.08) Kareem Hunt- Personally, I'm lower on Hunt than many others. Regardless, Hunt will be a 1st round pick in many fantasy drafts this season. While I think a sophomore slump is inevitable, others are going to target Hunt when the big 4 RB's are off the board.




(1.09) Alvin Kamara- It's so easy to look at how productive a rookie RB was and think he is destined for sustained success. I can't help but think of Todd Gurley sophomore season in 2016 and be cautious of drafting a 2nd year RB. I'm being a big negative, I know. Bottom line is the RB position is as deep at the top as it's been in a long time and Kamara should have a fine season in 2018.






(1.10) Julio Jones- These next 4 WR's are so close in terms of their floors and ceilings. Ultimately, you could put these 4 names in a hat, pick one out and draft him. They're all that good and all are going to be reliable WR1's this season.








(1.11) Michael Thomas- It's been a long time since I've seen a rookie WR have so much success and then follow it up with an even better 2nd season. If I have a late 1st round pick and decide to go the Zero RB route, I'd look to pair Thomas with either A.J. Green or Keenan Allen.









(1.12) AJ Green- Green has been consistently dominant for many years. He's still in his prime and is so due for a monster season.
